Stephen Colbert Weighs In On Inch-Short Subway Footlong

There's been considerable outrage over the discovery that Subway's so-called footlong subs are sometimes a bit shy of 12 inches. Stephen Colbert weighed in on the "Scamwhich" last night on "The Colbert Report."

"We have been five dollar foot-wronged," he says. "Twelve inches is 12 inches. I know it's cold out but that's no excuse. Now we know how Jared lost all that weight. He starved to death!"

Colbert has a great solution for how to measure subs to make sure that they are adhering to the correct measurements. A Fruit by the Foot!
